“Many drivers believe: might is right.” Lords Debate the Highway Code Amendments
It’s unlikely to come as much surprise to readers of this publication that there have been updates to the UK’s Highway Code.
Yesterday (27 January) I (Sean Meager), tuned in to witness Baroness Jones of Moulsecoomb (Jenny Jones), raise a ‘motion of regret’ in the House of Lords to trigger a debate among our Noble Lords. In attendance was Baroness Vere of Norbiton, Parliamentary Under-Secretary in the Department for Transport and lead minister for roads, poised to set out the Government’s position. Jones is an ardent advocate for safer active travel and CI.N has a separate interview with her here.
